Native Custom Baggers has been doing fat front wheels for over a decade. Here's a link to the kit for your bike. i'd advise getting in touch with them directly as they can also steer you in the right direction for a wheel as well.

I've installed a number of the Native Custom Bagger Fat Tire kits. I'm also getting ready to do one on my personal RGS. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me. Also, if you search on here, I posted a link to a video of me installing the kit on a bike, on the sales floor.

How many miles are you getting out of the front fat tire? Put one on a buddy's 17 and he only got a little over 5000 miles.

I seen your video, pretty awesome! What happens to the fall away when you do a fat front end? If you had to do a test on one, would you follow the same procedure or does it get modified due to the extra mass? Thinking of doing the kit as well and this was a question that sits in the back of my mind. Thanks!

I just did mine, so I can't answer it. However, I did look into it when I was researching the mod. I saw reports all over the map. Yours is the lowest I've heard of, at 5K. At the other extreme, I've heard of people getting 35K out of the fat front.

At least one member here, @dbell , has been running the kit for a long time, so maybe he'll chime in with his experience.

I have the Native Customs kit on my 17 RG, over 25K on the front tire, I’m sure that I’ll get 40k out of it easily. BTW I absolutely love it, will definitely do it again.

Thanks a lot man, glad you liked the video. As for the fall-away; whenever I do larger front tire setups (this kit, 23s, 26s or 30s) I always set them to the tighter side of the scale figuring that the extra mass will combat that and make everything feel neutral/normal.

I just had a customer come back from an 8,000 mile trip and his fat front tire looks as good as when I did his installed initially.

Jay, how does it ride compared to a 21"? Hopefully you have had a chance for a few miles with all this rain lately.
